In his seven-year tenure, Stotts led the Blazers to six-consecutive playoff appearances and put together a 325-249 record. During that span, the Blazers have won 50 or more games on three occasions, making Stotts the second-winningest head coach in franchise history behind Dr. Jack Ramsay.
The reward seems fitting for Stotts following the Trail Blazers magic carpet ride in the postseason this year. After two-straight sweeps in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, Stotts led Portland to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in 19 years.
With Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum likely to stay in Rip City for years to come, Stotts will continue to play a huge role in bolstering the Trail Blazers’ resume as one of the elite teams in the Western Conference.
